Fruit Fly Spraying in Anaheim

There is a current Fruit Fly Spraying in Anaheim project.  If you, like me, live near Euclid/91; your trees are probably being sprayed.

Valet Real Estate ServicesI was approached by a California Department of Food and Agriculture employee yesterday to explain the spraying.  He said they are spraying a very small amount of attractant/insecticide on each tree on my property.  They are spraying high up.  I understand that people and pets should avoid the spray site for 4 hours.

The press release today said they are also seizing any fruit on your trees.  They are also asking that you wash any fruit currently harvested.  Apparently the fruit fly lays eggs in fresh fruit - making it inedible.  It's probably best to dispose of any fruit you have recently picked.

The disclosure left at my door says they are using Spinosad GF-120 NF Naturalyte fruit fly bait, an organic insecticide to lure and kill exotic fruit flies.

If you have any irritation from the insectide, they are asking you to call 800-222-1222.

The entire crew was very professional.  I watched them treat my neighbor's home after they explained what they had done at my home. 

I received a total of 3 disclosures.  A pink form at my front door notifying me of the treatment.  A yellow form confirming the treatment.  The state employee handed me a 2nd yellow notice yesterday telling me that are currently conducting Fruit Fly Spraying in Anaheim.

That's a great question Carol.  I don't know exactly when the project will be completed.  I just checked the Orange County Register website to see if they knew.  Nothing yet.  I'll keep an eye on this.

I got another pink notice.  They are spraying again today, 10-26-11, in the area of Euclid/Medical Center.  This is not aerial spraying; it is technicians going from tree to tree and spraying a small amount on the trunk of each tree in the area.

Yet another pink notice.  The spraying continues.  They are spraying in the same area on 1 November 2011.

I got a new notice.  Windy weather has forced them to reschedule the spraying for 11-3-20100.
